This course provides an introduction to the principles and practices of program monitoring and evaluation, as applied to food security and nutrition-related programs in developing countries. The course content will be imparted through online lectures, case studies, interactive discussion, and assignments that prompt students to grapple with monitoring and evaluation challenges facing ongoing global efforts to combat malnutrition and food insecurity. By the end of the semester, course participants will: be familiar with the strategies and techniques for monitoring and evaluating projects, particularly those related to nutrition and food security; be able to assess the adequacy of monitoring and evaluation proposals and program evaluations designed by others; be exposed to multiple domestic and international examples of monitoring and evaluation systems, both large and small; and gain experience in the design of monitoring and evaluation plans for real programs.
